Abstract

This article reports the incidence, timing, and related sequelae for proximal and distal migration of the Zenith Fenestrated AAA Endovascular Graft (Cook Medical, Bloomington, Ind) used to treat abdominal aortic aneurysms. A prospectively maintained database at a tertiary referral hospital was used to identify 83 patients who underwent endovascular repair using the Zenith fenestrated stent graft. Inclusion criteria included a postoperative computed tomography (CT) scan within 6 weeks of implantation and at least one additional follow-up CT scan (>5 months) available electronically at our institution. Eligible patients underwent assessment of stent graft migration using a CT-based central luminal line (CLL) technique. The proximal and distal margins of the stent graft were measured using CLLs relative to vascular landmarks on all available follow-up CT scans. Migration was defined as stent graft movement ≥4 mm. Fifty-five patients were included in this study, mean age was 74 ± 7 years, and 89% were men. Mean preoperative aneurysm diameter was 67 ± 9 mm. In these 55 patients, fenestrations were applied to 162 target vessels with the commonest design accommodating two renal arteries (RAs) and the superior mesenteric artery (SMA). ...Continue Reading

Aortic Aneurysm

An aortic aneurysm is the weakening and bulging of the blood vessel wall in the aorta. This causes dilatation of the aorta, which is usually asymptomatic but carries the risk of rupture and hemorrhage. Find the latest research on aortic aneurysms here.
